Super Bowl LI was a very special game, especially for Tom Brady.

Along with the incredible comeback he at the New England Patriots conducted, what made it even more special was the fact that it was the first game his mother had attended all season long.

Galynn Brady had been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation throughout the 2016 season, leaving her unable to see her son in action for almost all of last season, up until the most memorable game of the year. It was also recently reported by the Boston Globe that she concluded her cancer treatments in April and has been doing great since then.

To show his support and understanding of the whole situation, Patriots owner Robert Kraft decided to surprise the Brady family with Galynn’s very own Super Bowl LI ring this offseason.

“He’s been so supportive of my family and certainly everything my mom went through and knowing first-hand how families deal with it,” Brady said to ESPN’s Mike Reiss on Friday. “He was always asking, ‘How’s mom doing? How is she feeling?’ We didn’t know up until the very end whether she was going to make it to the Super Bowl. She was a big inspiration for me, and RKK knew it. It was a great surprise when the ring showed up. She deserves it.”
